Book Bonanza

Book Bonanza is our annual book sale co-sponsored by the The Friends of Berks County Public Libraries and the AAUW Reading Branch.  It is AAUW’s  fundraiser to provide scholarships for Berks County  women.  The Friends use their funds to support library services in Berks County.

We are fortunate to be able to have this year’s sale in the VF Red Building again.  The sale will be held on the 3rd floor, the same floor in the Red Building as before just in different space.


Thursday, July 13th, 2 PM – 6PM – $10 early bird admission
Friday, July 14th, 10 AM – 8 PM – free admission
Saturday, July 15th, 10 AM – 7 PM – free admission
Sunday, July 16th, 11AM – 3 PM – free admission, $5 per bag of books (special sale)

Book collection will continue on Monday and Tuesday mornings from 9:30 – 11:30 AM through the month of May.  There will be one more Saturday collection on May 27th from 9 AM – 12 noon.  The last day of collection will be held May 30th.  since we do not know where we will be located next year we do not want to collect books that cannot be sorted for the sale this year.  We still need to find a location for next year’s collection and sale.

Book Bonanza has a new website, where you can look for the latest information about what is happening, the sale, donations, volunteering, future news when available, and how to contact Book Bonanza.

Reading is a powerful tool
